Album: The R.E.D. Album (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • This track features the vocals of Portuguese-Canadian songstress Nelly Furtado and is dedicated to Game's mother.
  • This track was helmed by The Neptunes whilst The R.E.D. Album itself was executive produced by Pharrell Williams of the production duo. "It was the most hood album I had until Pharrell came in and took over," Game said of the collaboration to Billboard magazine. "Don't get me wrong - this album is still hood," he continued. "I would describe it as the beauty of the sky meets the gangster of the streets. It's just got a bit more color to it."
